This Plugin does everything you ask a Shaman to do in the big picture. Does it heal, better than any class besides Clerics. Does it DPS? Better than any class period. So what does hybrid mode do? It heals you and kills the enemy. Exactly what you want it to do. That sums up this Plugin exactly what you want it to do. Can you add your own BYOS sure, but if it ain't broke why fix it.
Have been using pretty much all of the available CWTN plugs for almost a year now (with exception of WAR and MNK, but they are next). These are phenomenal! I cannot fathom the amount of time and work that must have been, and continues to be, put into each of these. Not to mention the pretty much live support from the developers and community. Bravo and Thank you!
Using it now for about a week now. After I learned how to do the settings of all the parameter-defaults I am very sadisfied.
After I learned to set my own meele-positioning I haven't seen any more spell-interruptions.
The way the autofollow is done in "chase" mode is the best I have seen so far. Works well even in areas, where other solutions of following fail, like dungeons with bridges and other obstacles where it's easy to get lost. This for me makes this plugin more reliable than other solutions. As my main group is done with CoV we are doing missing hero-aa's of the past. Doing so, the last days we did some crawling through Chardoc the past days. There was never the need, to manual correct the following of the ma the whole night, the chase-mode did a perfect job.
For this content of older expansions, the hybrid-mode is the best healing-mode for me.
The full healer heals as well as my own kissassist.ini
The hybrid-healer heals better and does slightly less dps than my own hybrid kissassist.ini
This plugin is more responsive than kissassist, as expected. An interpreted script can't be as responsive as a compiled plugin.
Not a must have, but likely the best solution around for your shaman.
MQ2Shaman has been fantastic for my first real foray into boxing. I play without mercs except to rez and buff and the shaman has been as better than most group pick up players by far. It is the main healer for War & Zerk. Still nothing like having your trusty years developed mate xyz shaman when sober but, is always there...always.
